The singing creek where the willows grow : the rediscovered diary of Opal Whiteley by Opal Stanley Whiteley( Book )

Long before environmental consciousness became popular, a young nature writer named Opal Whitely captured America's heart. Opal's childhood diary, published in 1902, became an immediate bestseller, one of the most talked-about books of its time. Wistful, funny, and wise, it was described by an admirer as "the revelation of the ... life of a feminine Peter Pan of the Oregon wilderness -- so innocent, so intimate, so haunting, that I should not know where in all literature to look for a counterpart". But the diary soon fell into disgrace. Condemning it as an adult-written hoax, skeptics stirred a scandal that drove the book into obscurity and shattered the frail spirit of its author. Discovering the diary by chance, bestselling author Benjamin Hoff set out to solve the longstanding mystery of its origin. His biography of Opal that accompanies the diary provides fascinating proof that the document is indeed authentic -- the work of a magically gifted child, America's forgotten interpreter of nature

15 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in English and Dutch and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pooh has a certain way of doing things which, as Benjamin Hoff ... demonstrates, seems strangely close to the ancient principles of Taoist philosophy. In Taoism, a way of living in harmony with Tao, the way of the universe, there is a a particular way of appreciating and learning from whatever happens in everyday life. This is just the way Pooh lives in harmony with life in the Hundred Acre Wood. As for Piglet, the Te (a Chinese word meaning virtue) of the Small is a principle perfectly embodied in this Very Small Animal."--Back cover
